Dhani Jones

The Sportsman

Rodale


Defensive captain of the Cincinnati Bengals, Dhani Jones, found himself at a professional crossroads after 11 seasons in the NFL.  When he hosted the Travel Channel’s Dhani Tackles the Globe, he found that his travels actually served to cross-train him in ways he’d never imagined, teaching him to become more grounded, globally aware, and, surprisingly, a much better football player.  From Dragon Boat Racing in Singapore to carrying 300-pound rocks in Iceland to biking in Italy, The Sportsman is a humbling and inspiring story of exploration and professional redemption.

Michael Weinreb

Season of Saturdays

Scribner/Simon & Schuster


Since its nascent days on elite Ivy League campuses, college football has inspired both school spirit and controversy. Weinreb explores the game’s inherent violence, its early seeds of big-business greed, and its impact on institutions of higher learning. Part popular history, part memoir—and uniquely American—the book is both a look back at how the sport became so fraught with problems, and a look ahead at how the sport might survive another century.
